"I will now be accepting new patients without the requirement for an initial in-house visit. Having to travel to my office from around the country has been a real challenge for many men and women who wish to avail themselves of my medical care. From now on, all you need to do is provide a new, or relatively recent, Physical Exam from a doctor. That will qualify for full laboratory testing and prescription privileges, in addition to my personal attention to your case, of course. You will be talking to me on the phone. In anticipation of the response to this news, and subsequent filling of my schedule, we have decided to accept pre-booking, at your convenience." You can see Dr. Crisler's original posting of this announcement on his Facebook page.
